“When my mom passed away, I was left with a basement full of her old mail, financial and medical files. I was overwhelmed with the amount of paper I had to deal with. Throwing it away, burning it or simply recycling it was out of question due to my concerns over Identity Theft. The volume of old files was too much for my personal shredder and I am glad to find a commercial shredding service company such as Neighborhood Parcel for all my Estate Document Shredding service need.
